On the Outside
Smart fortwo uses the car's Tridion safety cell as a focal point of the profile view, and the steel cage can be ordered in a contrasting color to the doors for a striking different look.
From the Inside
The Smart fortwo can be had with bright-colored interior panels as well as two whimsical dashboard gauges, a clock, and a rev counter, while the navigation system is optional.
The Smart fortwo's 1.0-liter, three-cylinder engine takes 12.8 seconds to go 0-60 mph, but you can expect stable handling of the 1808-pound car as it is wide for its length, and the rear tires are wider than the front tires.
As for safety, the Smart fortwo features the Tridion safety cell, which is a reinforced steel cage. Standard safety equipment includes an electronic safety program, two front and two side air bags, electronic brake assist, and acceleration skid control.
